The X-41 was presented, by X-Yachts, in 2006, less than a year after the launching of the X-35. Like her, she is able to race under the IRC, but designed as a One-design. The boat and her class association had quickly convinced and the series X-41 was recognized by ISAF in 2006.

Compared to a conventional X-Yachts, the X-41 may seem a bit more simple inside, less wood for sure but still the same volume and comfort. On deck, quality fittings are present in quantity. We find for example the Magic-wheel to fine-tune the backstay or winches Harken Quatro with 2 diameters already seen on the X-35.

Equipped with accommodations partly removable, a deep keel bulb, a mast and a boom made of carbon fiber, the X-41 escapes from the IRC cruiser-racer guidelines, but the rating allow good ranking.
